  1. Apathy

From the recording The War on Common Sense

Sporting a melancholy mood characteristic of Coldplay's Parachutes or Radiohead's In Rainbows albums, Apathy is spiritual climax of the album. Acoustic guitars swing to the gentle 6/8 rhythm while lush tremolo and slide guitars set a tender mood. Lyrics deal with social phobias, political fear-mongering and blissfully avoiding the world's problems through apathetic ignorance. Channeling the theatrics of Pink Floyd's The Wall, the song finishes with an epic monologue.

Lyrics

I wake up alone
I look at my phone, it’s a Tuesday.
I scroll through the news, I shake off the blues with a screenplay
I wasted the day
I hide from my shame
I’ll need more than YouTube to help blow the boredom away.

There’s fear in the air
But don’t cry to me
Cos life it ain’t fair
I won’t fight the war
I’ll just lay in bed
And watch them all brawl it out

I’m afraid of the world
I hope they don’t know my opinion
The left and the right will all eat themselves for dominion
I guess that I’m blessed
That I could care less
Beautiful apathy helps put the problems to rest

There’s fear in the air
But don’t cry to me
Cos life it ain’t fair
I won’t fight the war
I’ll just lay in bed
And watch them all brawl it out

Oh don’t believe what they say
As they pump all that shit to your brain
All the world’s gone insane
Crush your spirit and cast it away
And I’ve seen what’s it worth
It’s a price I’m not willing to pay
Oh the drugs they don’t work
But the doc says I’m doing ok
